NEVER BUY SCALLIONS AGAIN!!!
Ok, so the first thing that needs to be said about this tip/trick is that it 100% works. The second thing to mention about regrowing your own scallion indoors is that it fricken smells awful!
(So I have been growing the onions now for over a month and I'm on my 4th cutting. They just keep growing and the smell doesn't seem to be as bad. Still think the idea of growing some lemon leaves next to it would be a good plan. Hope you guys are having luck with your scallions)
So if your still willing to give it a try then it really is quite simple to regrow the scallion you already have in your fridge.
Simply cut 2-3 inches from the bottom of the scallions.
Next get a cute dish and fill with rocks, pepples or seaglass like I used.
Place your cut scallions in and water daily.
Sit back and watch your green onions grow!
Like I mentioned earlier, I found the smell coming from my cut scallions to be just awful. I'm not sure if its the onions itself, the smell of the water or a combination of the two.
I'm thinking that it may be smarter to plant the scallion bulbs into some potting soil so that you don't have to worry about the water smelling. In addition, it just may be wiser to do this in the summer months when you can keep your little scallion cuttings in a cute container on your porch.
I wanted to keep the cut bulbs in the same container for the whole week while I took the pictures, but I think its better to tie your bunch of bulbs together instead of trying to get them to stand individually in your dish. They kept flopping over on me.
Here are my scallions after I cut them and put them tied together in a bigger container to regrow again.
I wasn't sure if I should cut below the original cut I made or above it, so i did half the cuts above and half below.
I'll update the blog once I know which cut worked better and if you can get a second regrowth out of them. Also I'm thinking of planting something that has a pleasant smell next to these green onion bulbs in the hope of combating the bad odor. I'll let you know if that works also.
GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR SCALLIONS!!!
